We are very proud to finally release Professional Music’s first 12”, with five tracks that hit very close to the heart and mission of the label. NYC-based musician MDThies sculpts his debut EP into a record of deep, contemplative groovers, leaning on layers of dubby atmosphere and bursts of playfulness. The sound is organic, psychedelic, and saturated with a tapey analogue warmth that doesn’t obscure the musicality at work.
The A-side floats between grayscale haze and soaring rhodes chords, always atop a steppy bassline and masterfully finessed percussion. The B-side kicks off with a remix by none other than homegrown Stockholm hero Samo DJ. His mix cuts the fat and delivers a simple and impactful house gem with ethereal chords layered over the bassline from MDThies sizzling electro B2 banger, Tempt. A record that is equally suited for stay-at-home listening as it is for the late-night hours in the hands of an adventurous DJ.
